University Child Care Centre Society (UCCCS)

At the University Child Care Centre (UCCC), we believe that play is imperative during the early years of a child's life. The need to imagine, create, explore and discover is at the core of a child and teaches them to relate to others and the world around them. Our goal is to provide an exemplary, inclusive program that supports and encourages the unique potential within each child.  We do this by promoting the natural process of play in an enriched setting that provides optimal conditions for each child to grow, develop, and learn at his or her individual pace.

Our vision is to be the leaders in early learning and care and provide an environment that is dynamic for children, empowering for staff and values the partnership with our families.
